I'll try to break this up into pros and cons. Good news first...
Pros: Wonderful rooms, great pet policy, and super-friendly staff. The manager let us check in early (like 9AM) because we had been on the road for 6 hours without any extra charge. My dog stayed with us for FREE, which is a great plus for me. We stayed in the King Jacuzzi room, and it was so amazing! Three was a full bathroom and shower, but there was also the jacuzzi tub in the room to relax it. Definitely worth the up-charge we paid ($5 per night, I think).
Cons: There was one negative experience during our stay, BUT this was rectified by the manager. On Thursday night, my husband was stalked and verbally harassed by the "security" guard who was in an unmarked vehicle with an uncontrolled (*crazy and untrained*) dog. There had been a vehicle break-in earlier in the day (during which time our vehicle was parked in the lot and seen on security cameras because we were in our room!), and somehow our Escalade made us a "suspect". The security guard had no legal authority, but he followed us off-property to a nearby What-a-Burger and back. When we got back he told us he had to see our room key before we could park, then yelled at us about being involved in the car break-in, and finally stared us down until we were in the room. I called the front desk (it was around 5 AM) to report the incident and request contact from the manager. The staff member that we spoke to said the dog scared her too, but the security was necessary because "Look at where we are". This is NOT something you tell guests, and the worst part is that we knew exactly where we were--my husband was born and raised in Tulsa! 31st and Memorial is NOT a bad part of town, so for her to say that was a bit ridiculous to us.
The next morning when I spoke with the manager, he apologized profusely, refunded the night's fee, and said he would speak with the guard and discontinue using their services. We did not see the "security" again, so I know the manager kept his word.
Overall, I would definitely stay at this property again, and I would recommend it to anyone! While a lot of reviews say it is in a "bad" part of town, rest assured that it's not. It may not be the most "upscale" area, but it is perfectly safe.
